BRISTOL, R.I. -- In the latest issue of RWU, we shared with you a delectable recipe for Miso Seaweed Soup, courtesy of Chef Jonathan Cambra – assistant director of culinary operations and head catering chef for the University’s food services provider, Bon Appetit Management. But what’s dinner without dessert? Carrageenan – a common stabilizing agent derived from Chondrus crispus (a.k.a. Irish moss) – serves a sustainable substitute for gelatin to give the panna cotta its smooth and creamy texture.
